2006 VUE 2.2L
Default No oil in the cam shafts? HELP

So the other day I went and got my oil changed and drove home. The next morning i started the car and noticed a valve tap. I didn't think much of it as it might have been a collapsed lifter or stuck valve. The other day the sound started to get louder and I had the car towed home. Last night I removed the valve cover and found the right side ( drivers side) of the exhaust cam was not getting oil it seems for a very long time. There is no sludge that I can see.

How does the oil flow in this engine?

Has anyone experienced this issue with the 2.2L Ecotec?

What should my next steps be?

It seems I may have to replace the bearing caps on the camshaft and do some extensive repairs.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
